BandwidthThe amount of data that can be transmitted in a fixed amount of time.
Most commonly expressed in bits-per-second (bps with a small b) but occasionally in Bytes-per-second (Bps with an upper case B).
With the speed of modern connections, the number of bits will typically be preceded by k for thousand, m for million, or g (giga) for billion. It does not matter what case is used for the qualifier.
